Can i beat the crap out of you if.....

I hear you say the following statement. "I only eat organic foods." of course you say this while eating a package of peanut m&m's and drinking a can of soda... aaaaaahhhhh i hate people some times...

Edit-The girl was talking about how healthy she was since she started only eating organicly grown food. i guess i should have mentioned that part, i was just so erk at how healthy she said she was while shoveling sugar and other stuff in to her face... of course it could have been me.....

Well, technically..... I eat only organic foods, too. But then, I can't think of any inorganic foods...

Which would explain why I get a funny look on my face whenever I read 'Organic' on food labels.

Kerri, what do you think about the "Healthy Food" movement? I try to eat healthful foods because if the food is healthy it is still alive. How can oatmeal be healthy if the oats are dead?

Well now. But don't they tickle as you swallow them? At least the smaller things. I imagine the bigger things keep trying to get away. The sheer exersize involved would seem to be healthy.

Certainly better than the crap that gets pushed as 'health food' for the most part.

Darn. Solan T beat me to it.

I went looking for inorganic foods the other day, but all I got was a rock. At least it was chock-full of minerals!

Okay, so I don't eat 100% organic, but I've been eating fewer processed (prepackaged) foods for many many moons. Over Christmas I fell victim to a pack of Little Debbie pecan twirls at a truckstop somewhere between St. Louis and Louisville. And you know what? I could TASTE the preservatives. Oh My GAWD! Nasty nasty NASTY! And to think I used to love those things...

but thats the thing, your not eating 100% purely organicly grown food as your only source of food. This girl is, or at least thats what she was saying as she munched on some candy and a coke.... You can't tell me your doing some thing health when your not.....

of course they can tell you that . . .
Just because they say it doesn't mean it's true (c.f. "WMD").

I remember a few years ago going to the Winstead's downtown for lunch and seeing a woman who was pretty close to being equally wide and tall (and not that tall) at the counter. As I got there, I heard her finish her order with the stereotypical classic, "and a diet coke." She then proceeded to stand there blocking my access until the clerk asked me for my order. I got my usual double cheese plain and fries, which came up in a minute or two. As I collected my stuff, the person asked for the manager and complained, "I placed an order and it's been a really long time since then" (real world, less than 5 minutes). I refrained from turning and saying very loudly "that's what happens when you order two of everything." I'm sure in her mind she was eating in a healthy manner because the diet coke cancelled out the hypothetical three triples with everything, fries, rings (two orders each) chili and skyscraper soda (feeds four, they say).

Complaining about the use of the term "organic" in food products is Republican humor (i.e., not funny, and distracting from the real issues). We all know what it means: It's shorthand for "produced without use of pesticides, hormones, dead animal parts and other bad things large food conglomerates use to make McFood," and fits on a label much more easily. Me, I'd prefer my meat without the spongiform encephalitis, atrazine, estrogen and miscellaneous antibiotics, thanks very much, and being able to easily identify such is a good thing.

Meat from grower you know is best. If you can find one doing that.

Murray, you need a blog of your own. No, we need you to have a blog of your own. You shouldn't keep your wisdom to your self. If you had a blog you would have new material for your scheduled readings at cons. I will disagree with you about the use of the term "organic". It is quite unfair of you to imply that Kerri is a Republican. If it is ok to use the term "organic" improperly because we know what they mean by it, then it ok for Bush to say "nucular" instead of "nuclear".

Kill your own meat, it's tastier that way! Problem being that transmissible spongiform encephalitis (TSE) is much more common in the wild in America (deer, elk, free-range bison) than in domestic cattle. You're hundreds, even thousands of times more likely to be exposed to bad prions from wild venison than from store burger.

Best defense against TSE's is still don't eat the brains! Really. (As if you needed an excuse.) It's carried in the nueral tissues, namely the brains and spinal cord. If you process your own meat you probably aren't throwing those little bits in the burger grinder to stretch out the weight, or scattering them around your home slaughterhouse to expose the good meat.

When it comes to getting killed by your food you're more likely to die by salmonella or E. Coli from undercooked chicken or hamburger than everything else put together. Aside from overeating and clogging up your arteries, of course.
